Gas turbine exhaust expansion joints
The innovative design solutions introduced with the GTX-range have been achieved through several years of in-house and on-site testing, involving intensive use of FEA-analysis. Gas Turbine Exhaust Expansion Joints are available in a variety of frame designs and fabric materials. Below you will find the three standard GTX fabric designs:
GTX-A: This fabric is used in applications that have no pressure pulses and have fairly smooth flow velocities. The design is typically used on units installed down stream of the turbine, after the diffuser sections where the gas flow characteristics have smoothed.
GTX-B: This is the most commonly used fabric design that will withstand normal pressure pulses and flow conditions. A unit composed of fabric can be installed e.g. at the bypass outlet sections or after the diffuser sections.
GTX-C: The GTX-C design is recommended for heavy-duty gas turbine exhaust applications where high-pressure pulsations with turbulent flow conditions exist.
For an optimal GT solution our well proven frame designs ensures long life time.
All standard GTX designs can be modified to suit any customer requirements through proper craftsmanship.
